‘Ted’ Is the #1 Original R-Rated Comedy Ever; Seth MacFarlane Finally Finds Success

Seth MacFarlane has been waiting around for his big break for a while now. Sure, he has three hit TV shows, is hosting the Oscars, and made the highest-grossing comedy movie of the year, but no one’s really a success in this industry until they’ve written and directed the #1 original R-rated comedy of all-time, worldwide. This past weekend, MacFarlane’s first movie Ted reached an estimated $469 million worldwide gross, surpassing The Hangover, which had $467.5 million, to become the top original R-rated comedy ever. With things finally going Seth MacFarlane’s way, he should have an easier time landing his second movie and getting his agent to return his calls.
